Research seminar: From maid to matron – the reconstruction of St George's first professional superintendent of nurses

Harriet Coster was matron of St George's from 1873 to 1895, a period of great change both for the hospital and for nursing in general. Despite being matron of a prestigious London institution for such a length of time, very little was known about her before Dr Sue Hawkins began her PhD on the history of nursing; which featured St George's as a case study. In this seminar Sue will discuss how she was able to piece together many elements of Harriet Coster's life, to reveal the remarkable woman she was.

If you would like to come along and find out more about this study, please RSVP by email by Friday 25 April 2014.
